Spinach Dip in a Bread Bowl

Spinach Dip in a Bread Bowl


A real crowd pleaser.


  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 oz (1 envelope) ranch salad dressing mix
  • 10 ozs frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¾ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 round loaf of bread (1 pound)


  1. In a large bowl, combine first six ingredients. Chill for at least 1 hour. Cut a 1-1/2-in. slice off the top of the loaf; set aside. Hollow out the bottom part, leaving a thick shell. Cut or tear the slice from the top of the loaf and the bread from inside into bite-size pieces.
  2. Fill the shell with dip; set on a large platter. Arrange the bread pieces and vegetables around it and serve immediately. Yield: 10-15 servings.
